• A Lemon Bonanza

    13th November 2011GeneralStephanie Donaldson

    My lemon tree has moved inside for the winter and I was amazed to count seventeen lemons on it (fifteen now as I’ve picked the two ripest).  Now it is indoors I’m spraying it with rainwater as often as I remember.  This will help combat any possible red spidermite infestation as they hate humidity. I water only with rainwater and apply citrus winter feed once a month. With this treatment it shouldn’t drop too many leaves and when it starts to flower in a few weeks the kitchen will be filled with the scent of lemon blossom.
